Due to ongoing production issues with the manufacture of this locomotive we are still on the first stage of the hand-build and processing of all all pre-orders. Once this stage has been completed. We will look at the probability of there being a further issue.
We thank everyone who has pre-ordered for their patience while we 'get to you' however should you wish to remove yourself from the list and obtain a full refund please email us with your request.
Originally built in the UK between 1952-1962 the BR Class 08 Shunter was a diesel electric workhorse that every railway line/yard needed. With a top speed of 15mph and enough power to pack a punch it no doubt justified earning its nickname Gronk. However, modern day changes to the railway meant less need for such a powerhouse and many have since been exported, sold to industrial or heritage railways or converted.
